Had lunch in this lovely spot. Grab a table in the garden and enjoy the wildlife and community allotment. The food is great although when busy you may have to wait and watch a bit more of the wildlife while they prepare your meal.

We had a cream tea and a millionaires shortbread...wow! Delicious:-) warm scones were a big hit with my husband. A nice touch was that along with jam, fresh strawberries were provided. You don't find this in many places anymore. We sat outside and the surroundings are lovely. Attentive staff and a nice little gift shop on site too.

A MUST VISIT IF YOUR IN THE AREA!! Just been here for our lunch! Absolutely fantastic tearoom set in a lovely garden in a fantastic location. Sandwiches were very nice and on lovely fresh bread. There is also a chabby chic/rustic shop here as well.

We had a lovely cream tea with warm scones, cream, jam and chopped strawberries in a quaint little tea shop and gardens, but, when it is busy I think they need to look at how they can refine and improve the ordering system to improve the through flow and reduce queueing.

Stopped here for lunch during a circular walk with a group of friends. The crab sandwiches were excellent, the staff were friendly and provided jugs of water for our group. The garden is stunning and provides a beautiful place to sit and relax before the scenic return walk. I highly recommend this cafe it is well worth the visit.

I must say the prices at Sandleigh seem very expensive- I had a small slice of cheese tart which was £7.95, and a Mocha coffee at £3.20. The pasty was disappointingly small for the expense of £7.50. Lots of our first choices of food had run out by 2pm- no crab, jackets, bacon rolls or ham left. However, what we... More

Stopped both before and after our circular walk around Baggy point and both times the service was delivered with a smile and the drinks and food were excellent, especially the rose lemonade which was so refreshing. To be able to sit in the garden on such a nice hot day, was perfect, allowing us to enjoy the peace and quiet... More

We went here purely to get a cream tea which was absolutely heavenly. My partner ordered a pasty which along with a small salad and a handful of crisps cost almost £9 which I think is a bit ridiculous for what it was. The garden is beautiful it's a lovely little place to sit and have lunch.

We had the best cream tea (twice) that we have ever had! Beautiful setting in the garden, great atmosphere. Highly recommend to all. They had recently opened and arty shop in the grounds, wonderful things to buy, definitely worth a look. PLEASE VISIT AND ENJOY!
